The Philadelphia 76ers lost their third straight game, losing to the San Antonio Spurs 109-86.
The Spurs jumped out quick, leading the Sixers 31-21 after the first quarter. San Antonio never looked back, extending their lead in each of the final three quarters.
Philadelphia struggled to generate offense, only shooting 41 percent from the field. The 76ers did not help themselves from beyond the arc or behind the charity stripe, as the team only made three of their 18 three-point attempts (a whopping 16.7 percent) while shooting 65 percent from the line.
San Antonio received strong efforts from their star trio. Tony Parker led the team in scoring with 18 points, while Manu Ginobili scored 17 points and grabbed seven rebounds. Tim Duncan contributed 16 points and eight rebounds, while Tiago Splitter posted a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
